UNESCO in Montevideo

We got a note saying that UNESCO will be testing the students at my daughter's school this week, as part of a study of educational achievement in Latin America. The tests will be administered by technicians from the UN agency. I'm sure the results won't be ready for a year or more, but I was curious to see what else UNESCO had done.

I found this page on education Statistics on Uruguay.

And a map comparing high-school enrollment across the world. Uruguay, Brazil, and Chile are in the second-highest tier (along with the US) at 80-95%. Most other Latin American countries are a level, or two, lower. Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and Japan are at the highest level (above 95%.)
